Hull Henricks LLP is prepared to handle litigation matters of any size. Our founding partners have each tried hundreds of contested matters, ranging from the defense of multi-billion dollar products liability actions to the prosecution of individual civil rights claims against the government. We often take a team-building approach to managing litigation regularly employing prominent legal scholars and former jurists with specific expertise or influence in a specific area of the law.
Anchored by a former administrative law judge, our administrative practice draws on decades of experience representing individuals and businesses before executive agencies. While we work closely with agencies to reach an agreed and confidential resolution of disputes regarding licensure, permits, professional discipline, or rulemaking, we are always prepared to try contested cases and to challenge agency decisions in court. Our practice includes work before virtually every agency in the State of Texas as well as representation in federal administrative matters.
Our practice integrates appellate consideration into every aspect of our representation, because a victory at trial or a successful statutory or rule change must stand up to the scrutiny of appellate review. We also understand the value of challenging court decisions before a final judgment, and we do not hesitate to file interlocutory appeals or original proceedings to protects the rights of our clients on discovery matters or other important preliminary issues. Our appellate attorneys have worked as staff at the Third Court of Appeals and the Texas Supreme Court and strive to maintain their understanding of internal procedures as well as the relationships they have built with these important courts. We have considerable experience litigating both civil and criminal matters before the Texas Supreme Court, the Court of Criminal Appeals, the various Texas Courts of Appeals as well as the US Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit.
Hull Henricks LLP’s attorneys are as comfortable in the halls of the capitol and the meeting rooms of agencies as they are in the courtroom. We know that a statutory change or a modification of an agency rule can serve our clients far better than prevailing in any single court case. Founding partner Michael Hull was instrumental in putting together the major overhaul of Texas’ civil justice system in 2003 and Susan Henricks began her legal career in the capitol, working as staff for a Texas senator. We also know that changes in the law are only effective if they survives judicial review. Our legislative work is always informed by our litigation experience, and we regularly represent our clients interests in preserving a statutory change by filing amicus briefs and defending litigation challenging the law.
